Company Profile : IDFC The parent of the bank is one of the Public Financial Institution, Other are LIC, ICICI , IDBI IFCI UTI . It is founded on the recommendations of the ‘Expert Group on Commercialization of Infrastructure Projects’ under the Chairmanship of Dr. Rakesh Mohan.

Future Prospects : Though it is difficult to make any statement about its future but I am trying with the help of past of IDFC.

IDFC , Infrastructure Development Finance Corp, The parent of the bank was enjoying the relation with industry even before receiving banking license. There was a loan book but not as full fledged Universal Commercial Banking License. Which is now with them.

Maybe it’s difficult for them to fulfill requirements of RBl like CRR Sir, But the technology is very positive for them. Recently they come up with Online FD. Which paying little higher interest then other. Good move.

As leadership is very important for bank, there is good leadership in bank. Even though it is looking like Private Bank but still government of India holds around 7.5% stake. Which it my sell. Acquire or hiring workforce and setting up branches are looking challenging task for bank but there are some positive also. Like Online banking.

So many people are calling it Next HDFC Bank in making, Maybe. As for both of them the parent institution, Leadership and contact with Industry is plus. But HDFCBANK changes itself into retail focus. Right now there is Big demand for infrastructure funding and IDFC Bank can Fulfill it.
